Update! And about time, too...

I can hardly believe it's so long since I last posted. I honestly haven't had more than a minute to sit here over the last few days. Everyone seems to want the computer, and I've just been flat out working and stuff. So. How are you all? I missed you. I am writing again, kind of momentary things, but working on Safe yet again. It feels ... safer somehow *g* and I'm trying to make it worth the work. Whatever, maybe I just needed a safe retreat from all the incredible learning I've had to undergo in the last few weeks.

It's fun being a head of department in some ways, knowing what everyone is doing and having the right to know that sort of thing. And people are still being kind to me *g* - we have a newer teacher than me now, replacing someone on maternity leave, and our lovely Irish computer teacher just said he was leaving too, so that's sad. He'll need to be replaced somehow next term. I really like him, so that's a pity. Some of our males are really reticent, and we only have five.

(Damn, Finn is having a breakdown - I can't even get this done!!)

*sigh* anyway here I am back again, and dinner is almost ready. I am going to focus on some writing tonight if I can, although I have to make a berry mocha trifle for my friend's daughter's 21st birthday party tomorrow night. And I want to dye my hair before the party. It's a cocktail party. I had a haircut (just a tiny trim) yesterday and came out with a straight fringe! I wish it was like that all the time.

I can't believe that bridge that fell into the water in the States. How awful. They said it was deemed structurally unsound, but then they added there are 80,000 bridges in the States that are structurally unsound, so it's not that big an issue... or it is...

And Finn is still screeching so I've gotta go... back later...

Berry mocha trifle sounds just wonderful.... and a cocktail party sounds very civilised!!

I could really go for sipping cocktails in a bar overlooking the ocean right now!!

It won't be like that LOL! It is just at our friend's house, with their friends, Steve doesn't want to go and I have to dress up and make a trifle and take the children... but I'm determined to have a good time somehow! There will be bound to be doctors to talk to (both parents are doctors), and they can be interesting. And there will be other interesting people there, I HOPE!!! And if not, we'll just slip out and come home!

Hope you have a wonderful time!!

True. I can imagine we're going to a most dignified, high society occasion, perhaps... I'll become Simon Templar, the Saint *g* and be debonair

Good to hear you've been doing some writing.

What's up with Finn? Just normal kid stuff?

Oh, and I'm doing fine and thanks for asking!

Don't forget to take a second to breathe now and then!

Finn has... issues LOL! He's bright and brilliant and creative. But he finds it hard to deal with frustration. So it makes everything we do involve a certain amount of planning, foresight and tolerance *g* and I guess that's good for all of us, really. There are so many people in the world who are intolerant and impatient and unable to make allowances for others, this teaches us to do just that every day!

And I'm glad you're fine, I'd better go check my flist, huh. See what's happening in LJ land!
